A loan of $550 helped to buy varied clothing.

Nancy's story

Nancy, age 46, is a hard-working woman. She lives with her husband and their five children in the house that she inherited from her mother.

Nancy sells food and varied clothing in an itinerant manner. She has been working in these businesses for 15 years. That is why everyone knows her and greatly values her, in addition to being the only one who provides food service. The residents in her area are also grateful to her. She gives credit for some garments so they are able to pay later.

She now wants to increase her earnings in order to be able to set up a stable place, a store, to sell clothes. This way she will not have to sell by going door to door.

This is her third loan with Kiva. She feels that she has grown because she is getting the financial help to make progress in her business. She pledges to be punctual with her payments. Nancy will use the 1,500 soles to buy varied clothing for her business.
